Ik love besprekken Gods wil foar ús libben, sels as immen net iens mei my oer it. Conversations kinne echte Doetiid echte quick al-benammen as wy it oer kontroversjele ûnderwerpen. It is noait leuk om te fertellen immen dat jo tinke dat se binne ferkeard. Sa ik besykje te wêzen foarsichtich mei myn wurden, en gewoan wize nei wat God seit, leaver as myn eigen mieningen. like Clockwork, lykwols, op in stuit yn it petear, se sille lûke út de troef kaart: "Mar net de Bibel ek sizze net te oardieljen? Jo gemak skipped oer dat fers, huh?"It nea faalt.
yn Matthew 7 Jezus seit, "Feroardielje net, of jo ek wurde beoardiele. "Sels dy fan ús, dy't hast nea lêzen de Bibel te heljen dit diel fan syn preek wurd foar wurd. Dit kin de meast bekend Bibel fers yn ús dei. En it kin ek wêze de meast ferkeard begrepen wurden
Misbegryp dit fers betsjut wy misbegrypt hoe't wy mienden te love inoar. Sa it is wichtich dat wy freegje de fraach: Wat hat Jezus mean doe't er fertelt ús net te oardieljen?
Wat Hy betsjut net
Ferline wykein, myn frou en ik gie nei in houlik workshop by ús tsjerke. As wy rûnen troch alle hoekje en sprútsjerook fan ús houlik, wy moasten beprate de goede, de minne, en de ûnsjogge. Wy hienen tal fan kânsen te stimulearjen elkoar, mar wy ek hiene kânsen op attindearje tekoarten. Yn ús diskusjes, myn wiif holp my te sjen gebieten dêr't ik fal koarte, dêr't ik net wêzen as loving as ik wêze moat. Wie se disobeying Jezus 'kommando net te oardieljen my? Ik tink fan net.
Jezus kin net sizze dat it ferkeard om gjin morele oardielen. Krekt in pear fersen letter, Jezus fertelt syn harkers te meitsje oardielen oer wa't se diele de wierheid mei. En yn fers 15 fan itselde haadstik, Jezus opdracht harren te oardieljen dyjingen dy't beweare te wêzen profeten, om te sjen oft se fanwegen prate fan God, of as se binne wolven yn skiep fan klean. Not to mention the numerous other passages in Scripture that command us to make varying types of moral judgments. Jezus betsjut net te sizzen alle oardiel is ferkeard. En as wy binne earlik tsjin jinsels, wy net betsjutte dat beide.
In soad minsken easkje dat jo moatte noait rjuchtsje gjinien, mar se net echt leauwe dat. They don’t think it’s wrong to call the cops on the drug dealers selling dope in front of their house. And they certainly don’t think it’s wrong to turn off the TV when that greedy preacher starts begging for their money. Dan is der de irony. As jo roppe immen út foar oardieljen, jo binne eins it meitsjen fan in moreel oardiel oer dy persoan. Yn elk fan dy gefallen, oardielen wurde makke oer de aksjes fan oaren.
dochs, doe't oardiel hits oeral ticht by hûs, it is automatysk mis. Wa binne wy om oardielen oer oaren? Litte wy tinke oer wat Jezus hat dat as er fertelt ús net nei rjochter.
Wat Hy Does Mean
Wy brûke it wurd rjochter yn in soad ferskillende manieren. Wy wurde koe praten oer oardieljen in talint show of oardieljen in rjochtbank saak. It kin betsjutte in soad ferskillende dingen. similarly, it Grykske wurd Jezus brûkt foar "rjochter" net altyd dat itselde ding. Sa ha wy te sjen by de rest fan dizze passaazje en de rest fan 'e Bibel as wy wol te begripen wat er bedoelde.
As jo fierder it lêzen fan de passaazje, It wurdt dúdlik dat Jezus is oanfallen in spesifyk soarte fan oardiel. Hy brûkt in hilaryske byld fan in man dy't fernimt in vlek fan zaagsel yn ien fan each, mar foarby oan it feit dat hy hat in ûnbidich log yn syn eigen. Dat is as in neakene man krityk it gat yn jo jeans. Jezus is net feroardieljen elk type fan oardiel; Hy feroardieljen self-rjochtfeardich, scheinheilig oardielen.
in fers 5 hy seit, "Jo hypocrite, earst nimme de log ús fan jo eigen each. "Foardat wy besykjen om te oardieljen oaren, wy moatte rjuchtsje ússels. Skynhilligen hâlden minsken oan noarmen dy't se sels ignore. En wylst sels-rjochtfeardige minsken hawwe in spesjale jefte foar wiist út jo gebreken, se binne bewustwêzen is foar harren eigen. Jezus seit, dat is in probleem. En hy fertelt ús God sil oardielje ús yn werom.
It is bespotlik te harshly feroardielje oaren en te stean oer harren as jo libben is perfekt. God is de iennichste rjochter mei skjinne hannen. De rest fan ús binne smoarch minsken, wiist inoar oan de dûs.
Jo fernimme er nea seit, "Nim it loch út, en meitsje dy gjin soargen oer oare minsken fan de eagen. "Hy eins seit, "Earst nim it loch út jo eigen each, en dan sjogge jo dúdlik te nimmen de vlek út dyn broerren each. "Hy fertelt ús om ûndersykje ússels, en dêrnei te helpen de broer út.
It is unloving foar my te merken wat skealik yn dyn libben, mar om negearje it like it is der net. Wêrom soe ik lit immen I love bliuwe te wenjen yn in destruktive wize? As ik hâld fan dy, Ik sis jimme de wierheid sels as it docht sear. Mar it moat basearre op Gods standert, net myn eigen. En ik haw te dwaan dat út in beskieden posture dat werkent ik nedich deselde genede jo dogge.
Please do sizzen jaan Matthew 7:1. Mar ferjit net oer Galatiërs 6:1: "Brothers, as immen is fongen yn in sûnde, jimme dy't binne geastlike moatte wer him sêft. "Wy moatte inoar.

As my pastor just went over this a week ago it is fresh in my mind. Pastor Brian said “judge is not the proper word if you read the Greek and read it in context.” He went on to say a better translation would have been “don’t sentence as a Judge” or act like a judge (old testement style). Making a judgement and passing a sentence are 2 different things.
novimber 12, 2013 / by 1:10 pm
Aint nothin but the truth :) Amen brother.

This is really useful in my life right now. I’ve recently been having discussion with my grandma who is not a believer, and I’m trying to show her God’s love. I will confess my sin to her and ask for her forgiveness, and she will forgive but she will rant about how bad I am at certain things. I know I am wrong because of the conviction I already feel from God, but it bothers me a little bit because she does not see her own sin. She just breaks me down. I smile and love her. I understand that I have issues with loving my family, but it bothers me inside a little bit when she doesn’t acknowledge her own sin and is so quick to acknowledge mine. This is some help though.

Very good way of putting it and analysis of scripture. God segent dy. What is Love? I’ve been spending a long time on that simple question……woah
novimber 12, 2013 / by 1:34 pm
Right on! To go along with this, Paul says in 1 Corinthians 5:12: “What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside.”
It is our job as believers to hold our brothers and sisters in Christ accountable. Mar, we need to be examining ourselves throughout! Great blog Trip Lee!

Thanks Trip, this is an important part of scripture to understand correctly. Thank you for this post. You have put into words what i have been thinking. I’m a youth pastor, and this is something ive been wanting to talk with my students about. I will be sure to use this post and expand on these points. Again thank you, for all that you do and will do. I pray that God will continue to bless you and your family.

Geweldich. I’m so tired of people [Christians are at the forefront, along with many others] throwing this verse out like it trumps all. It’s used as a get out of ________ free card. Not at all what the writer was saying. Thanks for articulating.

novimber 12, 2013 / by 2:17 pm
I like to quote back Jesus in John 7:24 – “judge with a righteous judgement.” That disarms the objection and leads into an opportunity to explain what he means, as you did in your post.
novimber 12, 2013 / by 2:18 pm
This is What i was talking about with my dad and he said the exact same thing. God Bless You I hope that everyone will read this
novimber 12, 2013 / by 2:19 pm
Good word. I have heard that we should not condemn, but can righteously judge. As in I can say something about a friend who is “shacking up” but in doing so, I’m not being hypocritical because I’m not doing it.
novimber 12, 2013 / by 2:26 pm
Thanks for elaborating on this Trip. This is a very important subject tin this generation. So much entitlement exists. Love the irony you pointed out, te.
I see the perception of each judgment as being the problem. Our competitive natures trick us into thinking that someone telling us we are wrong in some dirt if way is an attempt of exaltation. If we see this as a love gesture, it takes on a completely different dynamic.
One more thing that I caught… You phrased this one particular part in a way that could confuse people. You said, ” Jesus doesn’t “mean” to say all judgment is wrong. En as wy binne earlik tsjin jinsels, we don’t “mean” that either.
Just for clarity sake, perhaps a better way to phrase this is that “We shouldn’t interpret this as Jesus saying” all judgment is wrong.
A quick read through, and someone might go from reading this to thinking, “Oh, Jesus didn’t mean to say that?” When I’m quite sure Jesus meant to say exactly what He said. It’s Ll in interpretation.
I know what you meant. Just holding you to the highest if literary standards. I trust you understand why I said that.
Appreciate your work (all if it, not just the music)! Keep grinding brother!
novimber 12, 2013 / by 2:35 pm
Deep truth being spoken on this one.
God bless your ministry.
I often think that when we fully understand our state of sinfulness, we then approach our neighbor with compassion and love.

awesome reminder of what it means to love one another!! thanks brother! God seinigt!!

Dankewol. One of the most accurate descriptions of that verse and what it means that I have seen. Every Christian should examine themselves through Gods eyes when speaking to another.

It’s our motive behind what we say that makes the judgment of our brothers helpful or harmful. Am I thinking, “What you’re doing is wrong! The Bible says so. You need to fix it…” Or is it, “That’s gonna cause pain and I know what that’s like. I care about you and don’t want that for you…”
Like Trip said, in other places we’re told clearly to judge false teachers.
It’s clear we need the Holy Spirit’s discernment to make right judgments, so we should be connecting with Him before, during, and after!
Another good point Trip made is, they won’t hear us even if our heart is in the right place, if we’re not living authentically before God and our brothers.
novimber 13, 2013 / by 7:40 bin
Ive been struggling with this for a while now. But reading this article has made me feel 10 times better than before. Thanks Trip! God bless brother.
novimber 13, 2013 / by 8:10 bin
Excellent article! “By their fruit, ye shall know them.” Clearly Christ whats us to be circumspect in reviewing others – most importantly, when we proclaim the Gospel, the first part is explaining how a person is separated from a Holy God due to sin (that’s a moral judgement!) Then we proclaim that faith in Jesus Christ (His redemptive work on the Cross and the Empty Tomb) is the answer to man’s separation from God, the Father! The Gospel message is incomplete if
we leave out mankind’s LOST position (the Law judges us!) But Christ offers grace to us sinners. As John Newton wrote, “I once was LOST, but now am FOUND!”
novimber 13, 2013 / by 10:57 bin
Amen bro. I live in Zimbabwe and that verse is even popular here!!! I preach the gospel and I have noticed more times than I care to remember that non-believers and Christians who are not living right use this verse as a shield against correction. It is tryst, really sad…

novimber 13, 2013 / by 3:18 pm
I fully agree with that interpretation of judging according to Matthew 7. I also wanted to add to that by saying that we as Christians are not to “judge” the world or those not in Christ, mar wy “judge” the body of Christ or the church. God says that he himself “judges” the world and not us his children. 1 Corinthians 5:12-13

As jo wier tinke oer it, “Don’t judge me.”, is actually judgemental.
If someone is trying to help you, and you accuse them of judging you……technically, you are judging them. (And wrongly accusing them at that)
eerlijk, you can judge me if you want, I may need correction. (“Correct in love”) Just don’t judge me for my past or by anything but the Word.

Wow. This was a great post. Lately, I’ve been trying to remind myself of Matthew 7 but kind of forgot what it meant. And we do need to help each other out but not be harsh about it. I agree completely. It’s kinda sad seeing ppl harshly criticize other ppl and seeing the criticized feel broken. The criticizing are obviously not perfect but they seem to not even realize it. It’s upsetting. More people need to live by Matthew 7. And the last verse was great to. People aren’t going to want to walk a path where everyone on the sidelines are spitting on them.

so here is a question for you. for the past few years i have been working on not jugding anyone for anything. as a addict pretty much everyone in the world jugdes you and this means that somehow these people now know everything about you. even what your thinking or what your gonna do or even how you will act or they may tell you how you feel about something. i really dont get how people can do this. its really bad. i have come to find out there are so many people out there that hate me, and they have never even met me. theres no way to control what pops into our head. mental pre jugdment can be used to prepare yourself personally for things you think may occure cause of what you notice about someone. but if you just pay good attention and can pick up on little things that show fact about someone is that still jugding? and then theres the question about assumption. by far the worst way to jugde somebody. i dont get it. even though you just told this person that you dont trust them to carry out some task because of (usually no reason) OTHER THEN thats just how i feel and is what I KNOW you will do. of course if this person has been known to fail, history can and will repeat, but to tell someone how they feel, think, or how there going to act is bullshit. its basically blind jugdment. and either that person will now feel encompetant and wont even try, or someone like me, will guentee to prove that person so wrong that they will never say that again. but even though you prove yourself time and time again. same assumptions. tinzen? i could go on all day.
